Hello Sindhu,

Ty to use following sample code. this is for Lead sObject.

Visualforce Page:
<apex:page standardController="Lead" extensions="extleadPicklistVal">
    <table style="border-collapse: collapse;" border="1">
        <tr>
            <th>
                LeadSource
            </th>
        </tr>
    <apex:repeat value="{!lstLeadSource}" var="ls">
        <tr>
            <td style="color:{!If(ls == Lead.LeadSource, 'red;','')}">
                {!ls}
            </td>
        </tr>        
    </apex:repeat>
    </table>
</apex:page>

Apex Class:
public class extleadPicklistVal {
    public List<String> lstLeadSource {get; set;}
    public extleadPicklistVal(ApexPages.StandardController controller) {
        lstLeadSource = new List<String>();
        Schema.DescribeFieldResult fieldResult = Lead.LeadSource.getDescribe();
        List<Schema.PicklistEntry> ple = fieldResult.getPicklistValues();
        for( Schema.PicklistEntry f : ple){        
            lstLeadSource.add(f.getLabel());
        }
    }
}

Thank you very much Hitesh.This works fine.

I have to create multiple tables similarly for all picklist fields. Can you help me how to place two tables next to each other?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Hitesh,

I am trying to implement your approach for multi-select picklist and its not working. Should we follow a different approach for multi-select picklist?

When i selecy multiple values in my field, values are not getting highlighted.

Thanks in advance
